And the winner is…..

Lisa! Congratulations! Although I was impressed with everyone’s creativity, our RN only missed two. The two she missed were TXT, which is their abbreviation for treatment and SCL which stands for scaling. Scaling as in periodontal treatment, as in when you don’t floss for many, many years and you have way too much gunk stuck between your teeth and your gums below the gumline and they have to do serious gum treatment to rid your mouth of the excess bacteria…yuck. Lisa I will be sending your prize shortly. I am sure you will be thrilled with it.

The answers are below:

RCT-Root Canal Therapy
PX-Prophylaxis (the fancy word for cleaning your teeth)
SCL-Perio Scaling

Thank you everyone for your participation. Stay tuned, I’ve got a few more dental abbreviations up my sleeve for a later contest :).

And for those of you who were confused about my “new job” here’s a short explanation: I have a friend who is a dental hygienist in a nearby dental office. At the beginning of this year one of their front office ladies went on 6 wk maternity leave and I covered for her. During that time the other lady in the office become pregnant and so they asked me to work this fall during her 10 wk maternity leave. At first I wasn’t sure I wanted to do it because it makes our life a bit harried but we decided that it would be a good way to save some extra money so I agreed to work from mid-October until just before Christmas. You can do anything for 10 weeks right? πŸ™‚

  1. Just checking in. Thanks for inviting me to your blog. Reading these family posts has truly been a wonderful experience. Going back through yours now. I am so excited about all this.U. Chris

  2. Too bad Larry doesnt have his own abbreviations. He will be sad. And good job to Lisa. I am going to catch up on my dental logs for next time! Cant wait to see you this weekend!

  3. Great contest, but I will admit to wondering who Larry was. So excited to see you this weekend. And I know you’re so excited about watching bands all day and all night!!!If we can get David out of rehearsal he is going to come join the fun. Did R ever decide if he is man enough to watch marathon bandage on Saturday? (I totally understand if he’s not)

  4. Ahh, see, I guessed that Lisa would have the most correct. So technically I won too! πŸ˜‰ LOL!(You don’t have to send me a prize)I so hear you on being harried while working! I did go back to work in the insurance office for a while- he desperately needed some help, and it seemed to be a good time. Yep, makes things busy- it’s hard to work and maintain a household. I’m only doing 3 days a week, so it’s not too bad. I will be looking forward to more dental abbreviations as well. πŸ™‚
